Are there any good Live DnB acts out there other than Dirtyphonics?
Heard London Elektricity is alright..
Sub Focus is shit live.
Hows Sub Focus live? Saw him a couple weeks ago on a DJ set and it was shit, no enough dnb, too much dubstep and too much electro. didnt even get me going that much even though i tought i would get quite high for the night. really disappointing..
As far as I know, London Elektricity are not doing live shows for a couple of years already. Qemists are cool, Chase & Status live are not so bad either, but I would definitely recommend New Zealand Shapeshifter. They are awesome live.
yeah, KJ Sawka does live DnB.
He's currently Pendulum's drummer, but prior to that he'd take his kit all over doing sets, seriously impressive drummer.
dirtyphonics - not live (dj with samples over the top)
quemests - are they classed as dnb?
london elektricity - split up
sub focus - not live just ableton
chase and status - triggered and drum triggers not live
shape shifter - live
kj sawka - clone of jungle drummer
lots of acts claiming to be "live" but nearly all of them use triggers or sequenced backings
myself, jungle drummer and fozz are doing what is a totally 100% live dnb show at the min which uses no playback, backing tracks, click tracks or drum triggers
every note and drum break is played LIVE by human hands note by note for every track
Talk about blowing you're own trumpet lol Chase and Status may not do triggered and drum triggers live but they are the best group to see live in my opinion. They are in a whole different league !
nothing wrong with stating the truth which is that out of most of the acts mentioned only 2 of them do actually play live
nowt wrong with plugging my own project whilst im here aswell
Shit dnb if they are.
Your new venture sounds interesting Vapour. Thanks for shedding some light on some other acts who always seem to confidently promote themselves to do "live" sets, when clearly that's not the case.
I was at a night @Ministry once tiiiiiiiime ago, TC done a "live" set with a band etc etc. I have never seen such a packed smoking area in all my life
